Mar 30, 2013 - More Plantations and Gardens

Heading South from Natchez I stopped at Rosemont Plantation, Jefferson Davis' boyhood home. The weather had warmed and I was treated to an idyllic Spring day. I was the only visitor. Rosemont was a very simple place, a farm. I enjoyed just strolling around. Another place I'd enjoy living as opposed to places I enjoy visiting.

A good lunch in Gulfport, the white sand...

So, you already know from yesterday, we didn't actually leave Galveston today, but we left from Lake Charles, Louisiana. We made it from Lake Charles, across almost all of LA and almost all of Mississippi. Originally I thought we might go to New Orleans this trip, but we don't have any more days left, time to head home. One interesting thing to note today. We crossed the largest swamp in the United States. The Atchafalaya Basin is...
